To Acknowledge or to Neglect a Revelation

If we admit that Christian Science is truth revealed, we must live in conformity with it. Otherwise according to our admission our lives declare what is untrue. To agree that Christian Science is a revelation is to acknowledge a divine plan in which Truth, the divine Mind, reveals itself to humanity. All that is true concerning our lives, therefore, exists in the revelation. The way we choose to live, then, constitutes our acknowledgment of the revelation or the neglect of it.

Fundamental to the teachings of Christian Science is the fact that its coming was prophesied in the twelfth chapter of the Apocalypse, where we read of "a woman clothed with the sun" who "brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron." This vision was a further elucidation of Christ Jesus' promise (John 14:26), "The Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you."
